The only thing I have to ask

The only thing I have to ask is what is a 15 yr old doing out on the streets at 2 AM. There is nothing good that can come out of teenagers being out at this time of morning. Where are the parents?

Dixie: I was thinking the

Dixie: I was thinking the same thing!!! 15 and out walking at 2am...WOW
At 15, I still had to be off the phone AT 9:00 pm, promptly! I had to be HOME(in the house) when the "street lights" came on and I better had stayed in view (meaning, don't go no where)...
Its sad and I am probably sterotyping, but that young fella probably has a single mother (between 30-33yrs old)for a parent, and she is probably doing the best she can, with what she has, however, parents (single or not) have to take responsibility for their lack in parental skills...It doesn't take a 4yr Ivy League degree to COMPREHEND that, YOUR CHILD IS NOT AN ADULT UNTIL THE AGE OF 21....so UNTIL THEN....treat them as such, CHILDREN.
